the human faces of violence in this country, like 15-year-old hadiya pendleton of chicago. >> just three weeks ago she was here in washington with her classmates, performing for her country in my inauguration. and a week later, she was shot and killed in a chicago park after school. just a mile away from my house. >> a mile away from the president's house in chicago. this is clearly personal to this president. and it's personal for all the families of gun violence who have been touched by it in this country. on their behalf, president obama made a passionate plea. >> hadiya's parents nate and cleo are in this chamber tonight, along with more than two dozen americans whose lives have been torn apart by gun violence. they deserve a vote. they deserve a vote. they deserve a vote. gabby giffords deserves a vote. the families of newtown deserve a vote. the families of aurora deserve a vote. the families of oak creek and tucson and blacksburg and the countless other communities ripped open by gun violence, they deserve a simple vote. >> i have been to a number of these state of the union

the shot that killed hadiya pendleton, those are the shots that caught the attention of president barack obama, who recently introduced some executive and legislative changes that he wants to see before the congress. >> is it going to be hard to get a conviction? >> i don't think that it's going to be hard to get a conviction. as i said, we have two very critical pieces of evidence. we have an unarmed teenager and a man who had a gun. trayvon martin ended up dead. i think that's going to be very clear to the jury. >> how emotional do you think this is going to be? >> i think it's going to be an emotional time for the parents. tracy martin said something earlier today that really stuck with me. what tracy said is to the nation this is a story. and to us this is the grief that we deal with every day, the

single question about the 15-year-old chicago girl, hadiya pendleton, who marched in the parade in the inauguration and was gunned down, the 42nd victim of gun violence in chicago in january? that might be relevant to the issue of how do you stop trafficking of illegal weapons and relevant to the actual policy debates under way in this country. >> richard, why does inside the beltway media have a propensity to just focus on things that people don't care about? >> look, i've been part of that press corps. i was there actually at the time in the run-up to the war in iraq, and, by the way, there were people asking those questions, but as a pack, as a pack mentality, this is a game. look, the war in iraq was serious. don't get me wrong. but we're talking about kids in america who were killed and how to respond to that. and so, you know, the disjoint between this photo, what the president does in his leisure time, whether it's real or not, how often he does it, and the cold, hard facts of american children being killed by assault weapons in our schools, that seems to be -- we didn't kno

a 15-year-old honor student, hadiya pendleton, who performed during president obama's inauguration. congresswoman jan schakowsky, inner city gun violence is a big part of this issue. how do we curb it? >> you know, it is, ed, but i have two moms, one who lost a child of 13 years old, and another 19 years old who are with me from my suburban community of evanston, illinois. and so this is everywhere. enough is enough. i think that we have a package from the white house supported by members of congress, supported by gunowners, and even nra members, at least part of it, that we can move forward, and not to do so is a travesty. and what are we saying to hadiya and her mother that we aren't going to act, not to mention the parents of the 20 kids at sandy hook. we can't do this anymore. >> congressman ellison, gun safety is expected to be a part of president obama's speech tomorrow night. how important is it for the president in your opinion to stay on top of this, and how much of a strong point does he have to make, and would it have an impact? your thoughts. >> i think the president ha
